Young immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as undocumented children and grew up here continue to fight for immigration reform by any number of means. Known as Dreamers, these young activists are succeeding in driving the immigration reform agenda in many influential circles and, according to some, redefining what it means to be an American. An immigrant journalist captures the voice and stories of struggle of many dreamers in a recently-released book.
